Dr Jenny Riker

Biography

I'm a teaching-focused Lecturer in the School of Earth Sciences and a member of the Volcanology and Petrology research groups. I studied for my B.S. (2003) and M.S. (2005) in Geology at the University of Oregon, then moved to the U.K. in 2008, where I discovered cream tea and have stayed ever since. In 2009, I came to Bristol to do my PhD in volcanology, finishing in 2013. I also spent two years as a postdoctoral researcher at Durham University before starting my current post. I currently serve on the Board of Directors of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) and the advisory board of AGU's community-based science initiative, the Thriving Earth Exchange.
